So Tell Me …


someone once told me abortion

has to be and stay legal, why?

in case the mothers life is at risk

yes! this is monstrously believed

they want to kill the unborn child

because birth may kill the mother


that seems too poorly thought

if the living child could seem a risk

how could the dead child not

pose as much or greater danger

whether dead or alive the child

must somehow leave the womb


but this is absurd, it beggars thought

I cannot make my mind surround it

it is inconceivable that we kill the child

that we may spare the mother's life

in what horrific circumstance could a

mother's life demand her baby's death


So Tell Me ...
